Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

A Massachusetts judge freed British au pair Louise Woodward yesterday after reducing her second-degree murder conviction to involuntary manslaughter for the death of an eight-month-old baby in her care. The trial, conviction and now the release of the 19-year-old Ms. Woodward has raised a host of issues, not the least of which is the question of child care especially as more and more mothers become part of the waged workforce.

Guest:

  • Gail Richarson, the interim Executive Director of the Child Care Action Campaign, a non-profit national advocacy group.
